Discover what makes New Zealand such a unique and spectacular hiking destination on an invigorating guided walk through this impressive landscape.

Every step has a story to fascinate and astound you!

On a guided walk through Beech Forest

At Guided Walks NZ we have carefully selected a range of walks that we believe represent the best of what our region has to offer, all within easy reach of Queenstown. We are proud to be the only guiding company permitted to go off track in the National Park area, providing a unique opportunity to get closer to nature than ever before.

Helicopter Transport
Helicopter transport allows us to take you much further and faster, and delivers a new and remarkable perspective on the impressive mountain ranges in the lower South Island.

Create your own walk
We have DOC concessions stretching from the Mt Cook area south to Fiordland, and most places in between, so if you don't see exactly what you want, please contact us. We will be happy to tailor an itinerary or day to suit your needs.

Most of our trips are available in both a group and private option. If you have a specific purpose, whether it's photography, fungi or birds or you would like to travel at a pace you dictate, a privately guided trip is the perfect solution.

Most of our walks can be undertaken in supportive, lighter sporting footwear.  However we recommend supportive hiking boots and some walks do require them due to wet or hilly terrain where the support and traction from boots is essential for your comfort and safety.
